Season 6 to Feature a Wedding


Season five of Bringing Up Bates is still underway, and UP just announced that the show has been renewed for a sixth season, slated to premiere on June 1st at 9pm ET/8pm CT. The network has ordered 13 all-new episodes. Who's excited??

Check out the press release:

The new season begins with a wedding to kick off UP’s “Summer of Love”

“With 19 kids (plus spouses!) and six grandkids, each day brings new opportunities and challenges chock-full of life’s emotional and humorous moments,” said Timothy Kuryak, senior vice president, unscripted development and production, UP. “This summer will be no different as the ever-growing family continues to pursue new activities, dreams, and relationships. Everything is multiplied in the Bates household!”

In the new season of Bringing Up Bates, it’s a summer of love for the family. From Carlin’s blooming relationship (will it become a courtship?) to Tori’s deepening bond with Bobby (will it end in a proposal?) to someone getting married in the premiere (who will it be?), love is blooming for the Bates. And lately, their simple rural lifestyle in Tennessee is in a flurry of transitions, as this remarkable and ever-expanding family continues to navigate life’s trials and triumphs. 


Erin and Chad Paine get pygmy goats, Jeb and Judson take Martial Arts classes, and Jackson earns his learner’s permit. Meanwhile, Bobby graduates from college and contemplates moving from Florida to Tennessee to be closer to Tori, and Nathan pursues his dream to be a pilot instructor.
 

Led by devoted father Gil and his loving wife Kelly Jo, the Bates do everything in bulk while staying true to their values and rules for the family.

    2. My friends and I kept calling out TV cable company until they added UP TV. I would try calling once a month if you have time. Just keep telling them you want to be able to see all the show on UP TV. We kept hitting on how we wanted a TV station that our entire family can watch and enjoy without worrying about inappropriate content for the younger kids,well really all of us. Good Luck

  3. I'm so glad the show was renewed, just wish it were a longer show a hour instead of 1/2 hour.... But so happy at least that's better than no show. And I bet the wedding will be Tori & Bobby's, who else could it be? So happy for them and I'm so happy for Carlin & Evan, can't wait to see them together more on the show. There are rumors on the internet that someone is pregnant, any truth to that??? K

    3. Sadly, rumours about pregnancy are not true..

      Also
      It may be Tori depending on if she gets engaged and can get married before the last episode airs, if t is weekly and there is no mid season break, the last episode would air 24th August.. so she'd need to get engaged and married before then! It may just be a way to get everyone's hopes up! And it may in fact be Chads sister, tabithas wedding which is today (01/04/2017)

  13. Awesome! I wonder if it will be the obvious (Tori and Bobby) or a complete surprise from someone who never even publically announced a courtship. Or maybe it's just clever wording and their teasing us, and it's just a family friend or something. Hmmmmm.

    1. Ah, I bet you're right. It's probably not even one of the Bateses.

    2. Thats what I was thinking :-) Maybe Joy...but she has TLC filming that? Can't wait to see who it is!

      Delete
    3. Maggie, I know that is interesting! It could be a wedding that none of us fans were even prepared for,a whole new surprise altogether! Maybe Lawson or Nathan who knows! It could also be the obvious Bobby and Tori, or just a family friend,like you said. They are "Baiting" us to stay tuned! lol

    4. I wonder if it will be Tabitha Paine's wedding?

  14. I bet it's someone else's wedding, like Jinger Duggar, that they are attending.

    1. Or Tabitha Paine - Chads sister. It won't be Bobby & Tori as it states above Bobby is contemplating moving to Tennesse. If they were marrying both of them would be deciding where to live.

      Delete
  15. Maybe a vow renewal or Joy Duggar's wedding. Erin's wedding was featured on 19 kids and counting if I remember right.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Tori needs to mature a lot before considering marriage

    ReplyDelete
  17. I wonder if Gil and Kelly will renew their vows? ❤️❤️❤️

    ReplyDelete
  18. At first I thought that Tori and Bobby must be the ones getting married. But then I realized that I don't think it could be them. Firstly, even if Tori and Bobby ARE engaged(and maybe have been for a while), IN REAL TIME, if the premiere is a wedding, then that means we wouldn't even get to see their proposal and engagement. Or then UP would have to backtrack and show all of that AFTER we've seen their wedding. I'm guessing that wouldn't happen. Secondly, in the description it clearly says that in the upcoming season we'll see Tori and Bobby's relationship deepen into a possible engagement, annddd THAT would have to lead up to their wedding, so we probably wouldn't see the wedding BEFORE the rest of the season. Third, it says that in the upcoming season Bobby considers moving to be closer to Tori(he wouldn't be doing that IF they were already married. Tori would probably be moving to wherever he already lives in that case). Fourth, it also says that Bobby is graduating in the upcoming season, so I take that to mean that he's graduating in May. And for the wedding to already be on the air by June 1st, the wedding will have had to be filmed before May. And I doubt Bobby and Tori would be planning a wedding while he tries to finish up college, and I REALLY doubt they would be getting married right before he graduates. Also, I'm not sure exactly about Tori but I think either she's graduating too or will be graduating at the end of 2017. And I think it was mentioned before that they were holding off getting married because they were still in school, so I don't think they'd get married this soon. The UP description was pretty vague while talking about the wedding, so I'm guessing that its just a wedding that the Bates' are attending(like when Kelly's sister was married). :D

    1. What a thorough analysis! I think you're right. And I believe Tori will graduate in 2018!

      Delete
    2. I was thinking about what was said and I don't think it's Tori and Bobby or Carlin and Evan, it said that Nathan has a surprise and after the breakup of he and his last relationship ,he may not have wanted a public relationship until he was sure and he's been absent from alot of family functions as of late and also they were teasing about a Duggar/Bates marriage as we're the Duggars and the Duggars were also teasing about not ever knowing who would get married next and it was let on that it was Joy but I heard Jan got roses from one of the Bates boys, they said Lawson but what if it was Nathan and both families have been keeping it quiet and Nathan is marrying Jana Duggar???? Anyone else think that's possible??

      Delete
    3. It says Nathan is pursuing his dream to be a Pilot instructor, where do you get surprise from that? That's why he hasn't been in the show. He's been going to school in Mississippi. Jana was seen taking the tag off of some flowers while getting ready for a Valentine's party that her family had!

  19. Are they going to Jinger's wedding?

    2. They DID attend Jinger's wedding - I could see several Bates seated - top section near the doorway which Jinger walked down.
      Also saw Ashley (Nathan's former girl ).
      Erin played piano, but was not highlighted.

  20. Are you guys going to update the Bates family header like you did for the Duggar's?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Someone getting married in the first episode is probably Jinger's wedding which they attended!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. They can't show Jinger's wedding because it's on a competing TV station.

      Delete
    2. Jingers wedding was in Nov. The last episode of Keeping up with Bates was from over Christmas break so they're already past that. Might be Joys wedding but even that seems off for the timeline (plus Duggars are pretty stingy about that kind of stuff, highly doubt they'd let UP film it).

      Delete
    3. Maybe Tabitha Paine' wedding in Jan or Feb - Chad' sister?
      Could be Kelly & Gil' wedding anniversary - isn't that in Jan?

  22. I think it will be Lawson and Emily Ann

  28. we are so grateful to uptv for renewing this but i think we've all become a little spoiled. i know you are busy, but do you think you can arrange a 'write in' (like we did to tlc for the duggars), to have the show extended from a half hour to an hour? i mean come on, this is one of the best shows on tv & we all could use a bigger dose of goodness in this harsh world!

    1. TOTALLY AGREE...... PLEASE extend our BATES show to 1 hour episodes, they are not on enough or long enough and the shows are rushed for just a half hour ??

  30. It's definitely not a Bates kid getting married. This is just a tease. I'm sure they're just going to someone else's wedding.

  33. Let's all remember, one of the in-law's siblings (Chad's family or Brandon's family or John's family) could be getting married/Or a cousin. . . I doubt it is one of the Bates children.
    I know they attended Jinger's wedding, but I do not think they will "cross mingle" the two shows. . . they did not even zoom in on Erin playing piano, but they zoomed in on the two ladies playing violins & the singer. ???? just something to be curious about.

  34. I know Bobby personally. We both went to the same college (I graduated last year). He's a great guy, and I'm really happy for him and Tori!

  35. I don't think it could be any of the Duggars when they were talking about a wedding. The Duggars are on a different network and I'm sure it's in the contract that their weddings can't be on any other network...

    1. It appears you can watch the show on uptv.com. It looks like past episodes from the current season. I don't know if viewers outside the U.S. will be able to view the show or not.
      We don't have cable in our home so I'm glad I can watch them online when the episodes are available.
      Hope this helps.

    2. You can't, trust me I've tried, I have not watch 4/5 season, and that is terrible, because I don't understand why UP TV, is being so mingy. We need good family show on TV/INTERNET, because trust me one can watch terrible things online, for free, anytime, but a great show like that are soooo hard find, SO UPS, PLEASE LOOSEN YOUR GRIP, AND LET SOMETHING POSITIVE BE SHOWED!!!

  38. I think a 30 minute show is good. If expanded to one hour, it would just drag on and waste time with more and more recaps of what we just saw before the commercials. Keeping it to a half hour moves the content along. JMHO

  39. Guys!

    I doubt it will show any footage of Jinger or Joys wedding as that will be copywrite to TLC and their show Counting on.

    It'll be Tabitha Paine (her wedding 01/04/2017) or another person who is not a Duggar

  40. @Lily and Ellie, is there any way to set up a petition to have the show run for an hour? I have requested it numerous times and I get the standard, what would we do with our other shows? They are all reruns that have been seen like 15 years ago. Besides they play 2 hours of Bates shows, just prior weeks. Please help us all out
